Download: A Powerful Perspective
Never has it been so important in human history to get our perspective on point as it is today.
Never has it been easier to compare your life to that of another.
Never has it been easier to compare our lives and remind ourselves constantly that we wished we were smarter, richer, happier, better looking, more fit, and more famous.
Why don’t I have a house like John? Why doesn’t my car look as nice as Sally’s? Why can’t I lose weight and look as good as Paul? Why does Irene live in a better neighborhood than me? Why can’t I fall in love? Why can’t I be happy too? Why don’t I deserve a promotion like Brenda?
The list goes on and on and on.
Each moment we are envious of others, we forget that others look to us in the same way.
Be thankful. There are plenty who would be envious of your life if you’d only change your perspective.
During the course of life, things begin to run on autopilot; things like work, relationships, health, habits, and daily mindset. We begin to spend so much time thinking about and appreciating all of the distant things we’d like to have that we soon forget to show gratitude for blessings already received.
It’s very easy to take things for granted. Practice gratitude instead.
If you think you lack something, you will. If you believe you are blessed, you are.
Perspective is power. As you think, so you become.
Choose gratitude. Gratitude is the most powerful perspective of all.
